Democrat Florida Official Refuses to Lower Flags to Honor Conservative Icon Rush Limbaugh Despite Gov DeSantis’ Order

The Gateway Pundit

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) ordered flags at half-staff to honor the late conservative icon and radio host Rush Limbaugh.

However, Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, a Democrat, is refusing to lower flags despite the Governor’s order.

“Lowering to half-staff the flag of the United States of America is a sacred honor that pays respect to fallen heroes and patriots. It is not a partisan political tool. Therefore, I will notify all state offices under my direction to disregard the Governor’s forthcoming order to lower flags for Mr. Limbaugh – because we will not celebrate hate speech, bigotry, and division. Lowering the flag should always reflect unity, not division, and raising our standards, not lowering them. Our flags will remain flying high to celebrate the American values of diversity, inclusion, and respect for all,” Fried said.

Florida GOP State Rep. Anthony Sabatini said the Florida Legislature should immediately convene in an emergency session and pass a law creating a uniform Flag policy and rid Commissioner
Nikki Fried of this authority—which is a gross abuse of power
